Damn, that was close. I was foolishly ready to believe a major Los Angeles radio station's reporting of a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, until I discovered the more informative helpful hunch from Joe in Booneville, Mississippi.

The antigay are endlessly claiming that "everyone" is on their side. It literally, logically doesn't make sense.

If the tide is turning, why does it take courts to override the will of the people in state after state after state after state? When put to a vote of the people's will, gay marriage doesn't pass. Majority of Americans don't want it. And calling it "marriage" doesn't make it marriage. Why do gays feel a need to push their lifestyle so hard onto other people? Are they that insecure about it that they only way they feel legitimized in their behavior is to force it down everyone else's throat? Carry gay relationships out to their logical end- no more humans. Maybe that's the reason all of the anti-growth, "we hate people because they are killing the environment" leftists and progressive push this issue so hard. Hmmm.....

1. Being gay isn't a "lifestyle" any more than being heterosexual is a lifestyle.
2. You don't get to deny other people their rights, merely because you don't like SS marriage.
3. While procreation can be a function of marriage, it is not a requirement.
4. In each and every poll to date, support for SSM continues to grow.
5. Please tell me how anyone else's marriage is affected by my SSM.
6. It is marriage. That's what our state calls it, that's what our federal government calls it, and that's what our friends, family, colleagues and community call it. If you don't like that, tough shit.

Having a popular vote to deny rights to others is fundamentally wrong. There is no compelling interest to deny SSM, which is why we keep winning the battle.

If your parents had there way negroes would still have separate water fountains. Rights aren't decided at the ballot box.

So, youre going to stop reproducing just because gays are allowed to marry? That's a good thing for people with your inability to think.

I don't think they care whether it makes sense. These people suffer from Ann Coulter syndrome, caring less about the issue than they pretend and more about their love of just being mean.

Well, there's good news for you and for Mick in ironically named Loveland: you don't want it, you don't have to have it. No one is forcing you to marry someone of the same sex, and no one is taking away heterosexual marriage. Isn't that great? Now you can worry about something that actually concerns you.

The mere addition of an adjective to the word marriage already indicates that it is not one that was designed by nature. So the term gay marriage is, for all intents and purposes, a non-existent marriage. It's very similar to the term white elephant or winged horses. We all want them to exist (well, maybe not all of us) but they are just not there. And come on, who are these people trying to fool anyway? When one really thinks about it, in the end IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY - tax perks and all, including divorces and that means more money flowing even to the legal system with the hiring of divorce attorneys and filing of divorces cases. See the bigger picture now?

Gay marriage should not be subject to a vote. It should be a boring non-issue.

Well, they don't care about the accuracy of anything. It *isn't in their interest* to argue facts, because their viewpoint is so OBSESSIVE. They simply hate, hate, hate.

Plato said that homosexuality is an outrage, a violation of nature. Acceptance of this unnatural act is a turning of society upside down. We see this turning upside down today. The ancient Spartan's demonstrated that the spirit of homosexuality is a predator, pedophile spirit. We see this today as advocates of this transgression are now encouraging cross generational homosexual sex; sex between adults and children. Scripture says it's a capital offense, an unspeakable transgression. When the spirit of homosexuality takes over a community, justice is completely perverted. God left a warning to the nations that allow themselves to be corrupted by such a spirit: Sodom, Gomorrah, and Pompeii were all destroyed by fire for the sin of homosexuality. A community's attempt to encourage and legalize this perversion will result in God's wrath in the nature of fire and utter destruction. The hope of the nations and for the protection of children from state sanctioned rape is the enacted justice of God. People do not have to act out their sinful passions. Jesus said, "deny yourself."
The ancients considered chastity a virtue and godlike. If you're caught in this sin call on the name of the Lord for your release, and be saved from the coming wrath of God. Plato writes in his Laws,” the crime of male with male, or female with female, is an outrage on nature and a capital surrender to lust of pleasure.” Google – Article VIII Union of Holy Assemblies – making God’s law American law.
The gay political activism that is corrupting American children in the public education system beginning in kindergarten will not stop until the death penalty is enacted for the crime of homosexuality. God in His wisdom instituted this punishment to protect the family especially children. It is the duty of sensible Americans to put God's law on the US Constitution. Google - Article VIII Union of Holy Assemblies - a NEW PROPOSAL to the Constitution makes God's law American law.

the Spartans actually had many gay warriors...not an odd or unaccepted thing at the time..hell the greatest warrior of all time, Alexander the Great, was gay...

your proven false gods do not come into play in this discussion, or any rational discussion...you should look at how well theocracies around this planet work and have worked...and even the ones now worship your same proven false god..(hence the shitty morals, as the false god of your cult was a petty, jealous, vindictive little prick.) this is what happens when humans create gods...the gods end up with human traits..
